Bull Creek valley-beautiful!
This is a great example of the roads out here
This is where 2K hill starts down
The view is amazing-I'll try to get better pics
Where I start- it's uphill!!!
I decided to go without the walking stick today. I was pretty confident that all the dogs along the "Cash Spring" turn around run have been tamed. T'was so! A real nice run today. Great temps! 79 degrees, good breeze, man, it couldn't be better! Reminds me of an "Ozark Mtn. Daredevils" tune. The thing about this run today is that my Garmin says that the grade on the big hills on Cash Spring are 30 and 32%! They are something!
Finally notched a decent mile split, too. I think I'm rebounding and getting back some of the zeal. 5 miles total in 54 min. but a 9:24 mile four. These are all on hilly routes. I can see now how speed can be attained. When I ran down on of these 30% hills I was going at a 6:15 pace, according to the Garmin. It was a blast today!
Thanks for your support and encouragement through this transition period. I still have to contend with dogs but I think over time we'll get it worked out. Peace! Best of luck to Carlee who's racing Sunday!
